    Hank "the tank" pirowski

    I don't understand what qualifications does this "KID" have. If you are ever out late night you can usually find him drunk in some lackawanna bar or now since its summer Mickey Rat's. He has pictures posted of him with drinks in his hand and his shirt off, parting and acting like a kid. I think the people of this city need to wake up and look into who is trying to run our city. Why would anyone back someone who is just about living his life as a "PARTY". On top of all of that when it come to school budget vote he had people passing out " VOTE NO" , and the same day posts on facebook to get out and "VOTE YES"???? I mean seriously??? I've seens oemoen else brought up that point in another post but come on.. this guy doesn't know if he is coming or going and what qualifications does he bring to the table???

    AboutPIROWSKI FOR COUNCIL PRESIDENT
    BiographyRecently, life-long Lackawanna resident Hank Pirowski Jr. announced to the Front Page that he will be a candidate in the upcoming Democratic Primary for the office of Council President. Pirowski stated, “Our uniquely diverse community has prepared me for life’s challenges in ways that I do not believe possible in other cities. As a young man growing up in our small city, I grew up appreciating the... opportunity of having your voice heard. Here unlike in other communities, every person and vote counts. This has drawn me into politics with the ability to make a difference in the community that I love.”

    Hank is the son of Hank Sr. and Gloria Pirowski. Pirowski is a 2000 graduate of Lackawanna High School where he excelled in his studies and extra-curricular activities including helping lead the Lackawanna Steelers football team to several New York State Championship appearances. He is also currently attending Buffalo State College where he will graduate in spring 2012 with a dual major in Political Science and History.

    Hank continued, “I am a life-long resident of Lackawanna. I enjoyed my upbringing here and am extremely proud to be from this community. You do not have to be a rich city to be a great city and what we may lack in wealth we more than make up for in cultural affluence. We are a true American melting pot of numerous ethnicities and religions. Having grown up on both sides of the bridge I believe I am a unique candidate in this race with the ability to move past the old grudges and bring us together. I have a very strong work ethic that my family instilled in me and am extremely anxious to meet as many citizens as possible in the upcoming months. I want you to get to know me and I want to get to know you, so I will be working hard going door to door, on a listening tour to hear all of your concerns. Please don’t hesitate to stop me anytime as I am always available to the public.”

    “I don’t have all the answers, no one does, but I will do my absolute best to address all of your concerns and get back to you on how I plan to solve your problems. It doesn’t matter if you support me or not, your issues A-Z are MY issues. I know many of our citizens have become disenfranchised with the politics in our city and do not believe their vote makes a difference. I want to challenge all citizens of Lackawanna; I want to challenge you to believe that another Lackawanna is possible. But it is only possible with your active participation. I will never stop working to improve our city, elected or not. We must expect and demand more for our city. I certainly do and with your help we will make a difference together”, concluded Pirowski.

    FDR's Ghost Is Smiling on Wisconsin's Governor
    By Patrick McIlheran


    Somewhere, Franklin Delano Roosevelt is grinning past his cigarette holder at Wisconsin's governor. They are on the same page regarding government unions.

    Except that Scott Walker -- Republican cheapskate, his visage Hitlerized on signs waved by beet-faced union crowds besieging the Capitol -- is kind of a liberal squish compared to FDR. He's OK with some collective bargaining.

    unions FDR

    Scott Walker Wisconsin

    [+] More

    Walker, you might have heard, wants some changes in how Wisconsin deals with unions. He wants state employees to pay 5.8% of their salaries toward their pensions (they pay almost nothing now) and he wants them to cover 12.6% of their health care premiums (their share would go up from $79 a month to about $200; the average private-sector sap pays about $330).

    Unions are enraged. They've been calling such increases unspeakable since Walker was elected handily in November. Then, Feb. 10, Walker went further. He'd allow public-sector unions to negotiate only pay, not benefits, mainly because he wants HSA-style health plans and 401(k)-style retirements for state workers, and unions would fight that, tooth and ragged red claw.

    So unions erupted. Teachers faked illness in such numbers as to close school districts for days. Mobs beat on the doors of legislative chambers. And in some heavenly Hyde Park, the great liberal god of the 1930s is saying he saw it all along.

    Roosevelt's reign certainly was the bright dawn of modern unionism. The legal and administrative paths that led to 35% of the nation's workforce eventually unionizing by a mid-1950s peak were laid by Roosevelt.

    But only for the private sector. Roosevelt openly opposed bargaining rights for government unions.

    "The process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service," Roosevelt wrote in 1937 to the National Federation of Federal Employees. Yes, public workers may demand fair treatment, wrote Roosevelt. But, he wrote, "I want to emphasize my conviction that militant tactics have no place" in the public sector. "A strike of public employees manifests nothing less than an intent on their part to prevent or obstruct the operations of Government."

    And if you're the kind of guy who capitalizes "government," woe betide such obstructionists.

    Roosevelt wasn't alone. It was orthodoxy among Democrats through the '50s that unions didn't belong in government work. Things began changing when, in 1959, Wisconsin's then-Gov. Gaylord Nelson signed collective bargaining into law for state workers. Other states followed, and gradually, municipal workers and teachers were unionized, too.

    Even as that happened, the future was visible. Frank Zeidler, Milwaukee's mayor in the 1950s and the last card-carrying Socialist to head a major U.S. city, supported labor. But in 1969, the progressive icon wrote that rise of unions in government work put a competing power in charge of public business next to elected officials. Government unions "can mean considerable loss of control over the budget, and hence over tax rates," he warned.

    There was "a revolutionary principle rather quietly at work in American government," he wrote.

    The principle was working at about 100 decibels in Wisconsin's Capitol last week, once the union drum-beaters got going. What worked them up was the money they'd concede, they said, but even more that Walker would make their unions surrender the control they'd gained over every government budget.

    Walker, like other Republicans, was long accused of hating government. For eight years as chief executive of heavily Democrat Milwaukee County, he would not raise taxes, which opponents said showed his contempt for government.

    Yet all this past week, he praised public employees and he said the work government does is so necessary, taxpayers should get as much of it for their money as possible. Meanwhile, thousands of schoolteachers on the Capitol lawn manifested their intent to obstruct Government and their belief that the tots back at Roosevelt Elementary could darn well spend a day or three watching Nickelodeon at home.

    And, to beat all, the president who now professes to be the new Reagan weighed in to say Walker was being unduly mean to unions. President Obama gave no audible word on whether unions were being unduly mean in shutting down schools.

    Walker, good Republican, is no FDR but he is offering Wisconsin a new deal, lower-case. Wisconsin's been a seedbed of bad ideas since it hatched Progressivism, and for years it's stuck with unionized government even as the price swelled. Walker's radical shift is to try securing necessary government at a better price. The unions, whose model depends on making government labor as costly as taxpayers will bear, object.

    May they be haunted by the ghost of the 32nd president, and his little dog, too.
